Taryan Barrick

Taryan Barrick threw a two-hitter in Monday's Class 1A Region 5 Final in Ackley, and lost. Algona Bishop Garrigan used one of those two hits to produce the only run of the game in their 1-0 win.

MaKenna Kuper had hit a home run in each of the previous two Regional games. In Ackley Monday night, needing base runners in the seventh inning, she was called on to bunt.

That, in one pitch, paints how the game was going for the sixth-ranked Cougars (20-7) as they faced seventh-rated Algona Bishop Garrigan (29-6) in the Region 5 final.
